Chrome or blue to match the valve covers and do the timing cover black.

They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.

The hammer tone look is a good one. Powder by the Pound sells a silver vein power that looks really good too.

This is completely subjective. It makes no sense to ask others what color to put on YOUR stuff. Put what you want and like... dont let others decide for you.

"Near Chrome" is what i was told it was called. Its two stage. First silver and then clear. Very expensive though....
